Competitions are used to procure design in various forms, providing clients in search of an architect, landscape architect, or planner with the means to select a specific designer or just to generate ideas. Exploring this phenomenon, The Design Competition Conference asks whether design competitions are good for society. Are they ethical? Do they help or hurt designers? Do they enhance the quality of design or should they be curtailed or regulated? Designers, jurors, clients, critics, and others will explore these questions. Co-chaired by Jerold S. Kayden, Frank Backus Williams Professor of Urban Planning and Design, and David van der Leer, Executive Director of the Van Alen Institute. Sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s Urban Planning and Design Department and the Van Alen Institute.

Free and open to the public.
